i have recently aquired a mid 80's bc rich stlll. alder body maple neck rosewood fretboard bolt on 25.5 scale and a floyd rose. in other words you basic superstrat.
i currently have a duncan distortion in it. i love the distortion in my jackson neckthru. its nice and fat but also tight and cutting.
however in the bc rich it had a tone i describe as 'planky'. i think it may have something to do with the general snap of a bolt on mixed with the upper mids of the distortion.
so i am wanting something to smooth out that hard planky sound but still retain tightness. i play extreme metal tuned to c#.
right now my first thought is duncan custom.
any other recomendations? i dont care about brand. just let the suggestions fly.
